"Jig-a-Jig" was a UK Top 10 hit single, released in May 1970, by the progressive rock band, East of Eden. It is also the title of a full length album by the band. The piece is actually a set of three traditional reels, not jigs, namely The Ashplant Reel, Drowsy Maggie and Jenny's Chicken. The arrangement is based on electric violin with bass guitar and drums providing a rock rhythm backing. Electric guitar is used to underscore some of the high points of the fiddling.

In 2006, British folk metal band, Skyclad, released their Jig-a-Jig EP, featuring the tune and three tracks from the recording sessions of the band's previous album, A Semblance of Normality. While the "Jig-a-Jig" is traditional, the arrangement of Skyclad's version is similar to East of Eden's, so it is sometimes considered as a cover version.
